Bio

In 2017, Ryan Reed returns behind the wheel of the No. 16 Lilly Diabetes Ford Mustang for Roush Fenway Racing. Reed and crew chief Phil Gould will team up again this season in the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS).

The 2016 season saw Reed make the field for the inaugural NXS Chase.  Reed and the No. 16 team nearly missed advancing to the final round of the Chase, ultimately finishing sixth in the driver point standings on the strength of seven top-10 finishes during the 2016 season.

In addition, Reed made his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup debut at Talladega Superspeedway in October, finishing a respectable 26th in the No. 99 Lilly Diabetes/American Diabetes Association Ford Fusion.

In 2015, Reed kicked off the season by winning the season-opener in Daytona, recording his first career win and the first win for Roush Fenway Racing in the XFINITY Series at Daytona.

After climbing out of the car, Reed said, “This is for … every kid who gets diagnosed with diabetes, or anything, that says you can’t do something, just go out there and overcome it and do it and win.  Do the best you can.  This is unreal.  It hasn’t even soaked in yet.”

In addition to his XFINITY Series win at Daytona, Reed also took home two victories in three ARCA Racing Series starts for Lira Motorsports.  He finished the 2015 NASCAR XFINITY Series season 10th in the championship points standings after leading a total 16 laps.

Reed completed his first full NASCAR XFINITY Series season in 2014, behind the wheel of the No. 16 Mustang.  In his rookie campaign, Reed earned one top-five and one top-10 finish while leading 29 laps.  His best finish came in July at Daytona International Speedway, where the driver crossed the finish line in fourth.

In 2013, Ryan Reed joined the Roush Fenway stable of development drivers, making six starts in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.  In his debut at Richmond International Raceway (RIR), Reed ran in the top-10 for the majority of the race, ultimately finishing 16th.  The second time Reed returned to RIR, he earned a then career-best ninth-place finish.

In October 2013, Reed – who has type 1 diabetes – and Roush Fenway announced a partnership between the American Diabetes Association’s Drive to Stop Diabetes and Lilly Diabetes that saw Reed compete full time in the NASCAR XFINITY Series in 2014.

Reed’s racing career began at a young age, capturing the Kid’s Kart Track Championship at the age of four.  The Bakersfield, California native followed that up by becoming the Junior 1 Comer and HPV Karting Track Champion at age eight.

In 2009, Reed was crowned the Legends Division Track Champion at Toyota Speedway at Irwindale.  He backed up his Championship the following year at Toyota Speedway at Irwindale with 2010 Rookie of the Year honors in the Super Late Model Division.  He took home one win in the 2010 season, becoming the youngest winner at Toyota Speedway at Irwindale in the Super Late Model Division.

At the age of 17, Reed made the long move from California to North Carolina, to surround himself with the racing community.

In 2011, Reed was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and told that he would never race again.  Instead of giving up, Reed found Anne Peters, MD, of USC’s Clinical Diabetes Program in California, who assured Reed with hard work he could still race.

Reed implemented life style changes that included a strict diet and exercise program, the use of devices to provide on track data, and reporting all of this information to his medical team in California.

The young driver next ventured to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, competing in three races in 2011, with his best finish of 16th coming at Greenville-Pickens Speedway.

2012 saw Reed compete in 14 ARCA races, earning one top-five and six top-10 finishes.  He had an average start of 8.6 and an average finish of 10.6.  He also made one start in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where he finished 17th.
